Red Delicious — Casualties lyrics

We're the casualties
No-one tells you about us
You'll hear stories
But you have to live to believe
We're the bodies
Piled up by the roadside
You'll smell us burning
It'll give you bad dreams
Don't run away
We're a cautionary tale
Walk softly
And take heed
Don't offer us
Your sympathy
You don't know
What we need
We're the lost and the forsaken
Screaming just to hear a voice
A sound to fill the empty spaces
A hand to hold and still the shaking
We're the spineless
The skinless and the broken
You'll be a crutch
Cause we can't stand on our own
You'll gather round us
To comfort and heal us
But the nature of our pain
Will remain unknown
Don't come to me
For happiness
I'm an open pit
And you will just fall in
Don't ask me
What my problem is
I wouldn't know
Where to begin
We're the lost and the forsaken
Screaming just to hear a voice
A sound to fill the empty spaces
A hand to hold and still the shaking
We're the wasted and the weary
Giving up and falling down
We're the needy, sick for your love
A hand to hold to still the shaking
Let it go and lay it down
A drug to take to stop the aching
I get so tired of holding on
I get so cold that I am chilled to the bone
I cry so hard it knocks me down
I just don't want to be alone
We're the lost and the forsaken
Screaming just to hear a voice
A sound to fill the empty spaces
A hand to hold and still the shaking
We're the wasted and the weary
Giving up and falling down
We're the needy, sick for your love
A hand to hold to still the shaking
Don't offer sympathy
(Let it go and lay it down)
Cause you don't know what I need
I'm so tired of holding on
(Let it go and lay it down)
Giving up and falling down
I don't wanna be alone
(Let it go and lay it down)
And it chills me to the bone
So don't ask me what's wrong
(Let it go and lay it down)
Going on so long, I don't know
I'm wasted and I'm cold
(Let it go and lay it down)
And I need a hand to hold
The nature of my pain
(Let it go and lay it down)
Remains unknown to even me
Screaming for a sound
(Let it go and lay it down)
Cause I feel like someone's around
Let it go and lay it down
(Let it go and lay it down)
Fill the empty space with love
